THE VENUE OF ALICANTE PUTS ON ITS FESTIVAL CLOTHES FOR CHRISTMAS

For the third consecutive year, the Venue Ciudad de Alicante has organized its traditional series Navidad Musical (Musical Christmas) in the Venue which this year will offer three concerts throughout the month of December. The first of them, a concert of choral music, will take place in the Concatedral of San Nicolás. It is a concert entitled ¡Dadme albricias! Música para Navidad,which will be performed on the 1st of December and which will have the performance of the Coro de Cámara Grup Pro Música Antiga of Valencia. In this first concert, "with a Christmas spirit", as the coordinator of the series, María Marco, explains: "a selection of carols of the so called Uppsala songbook will be interpreted. This songbook is a musical compilation of vocal songs discovered at the beginning of the XXth Century in the university library of the city of Uppsala (Sweden) from which it takes its name". The program is completed with instrumental songs for clef coming from the music collection for key of Luis Venegas de Henestrosa (Alcalá de Henares 1557). The concert, directed by Achim Schulz, will start at 20.30.

The second concert will take place on the 16th of December in the Venue. It is a recital in which the soprano Ascensión Padilla and the pianist Tatiana Podgainova will offer a repertoire in two parts: the first of them of Christmas content and the second one, in a melt between lyrical music and Spanish operetta, with a selection of arias and romanzas among which Rinaldo, Le Rondine o The barber of Seville are stressed. The concert will start at 20.15.

The series will finish on the 22nd of December in the Venue, with a trip through the history of music, from the ancient Italian arias of Scarlatti and Vivaldi, through the bell canto, the Spanish operetta, to the most popular music, Spanish and foreign, which will finish with Christmas pieces. The concert, which will start at 20.15, will have the interpretations of the soprano Ascensión Padilla, the baritone Álvaro Kavac and the pianist, Francisco-Fernando Martínez.

The entrance to the concerts is free and limited to the capacity of the room.
